Norman Road, Belvedere, 12" x 10", Oil on Canvas Board, 2009

alla prima landscape painting norman road oil on canvas board snow

It started snowing on Sunday night just before I left church and it has only stopped snowing this morning. We don't always have this sort of snow in London so I decided to take the opportunity to paint a snow scene on the spot, something I have never done before. The only other time I attempted a snow scene, I only did a sketch, then took pictures and worked it out in the studio.

But today it was fun! Not too cold at the start as I was well geared up but after a while the numbness on my fingers started to ooze in and that was it!

I have worked on a cotton canvas stuck onto MDF board, in an Alla Prima technique. I used titanium white(Alkyd), lemon yellow, cadmium yellow light, cadmium red, alizarin crimson, viridian Green and Ultramarine blue.
